RE: Registration of Municipal Advisors under Section 975 of the Dodd-Frank Wall Street Reform and Consumer Protection Act

Dear Ms. Murphy:

On March 8, 2012, Mr. Richard Legon of the Association of Governing Boards (AGB) wrote to you offering alternative language in regard to the issue of "municipal advisors" and independent governing board members for colleges and universities. This message strongly supports the AGB perspective so that higher education institutions may continue to attract volunteer Board members with expertise and high professional qualifications. Thank you for your serious consideration of the position held by the AGB and its members.
